Florian Schneider is a filmmaker, media artist and activist based in Munich and Brussels. As a curator, he is concerned with film, documentary formats, and the potential of networked environments – all always in a political context. His central interest lies in transgressing boundaries – between mainstream and independent media, art and activism, theory and open-source technology. Most recently, he has initiated and co-curated the multimedia performance project "Dictionary of War" (2005-now). In 2010 he was one of the co-curators of the first edition of the Berlin Documentary Forum at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin. He teaches theory at the Art Academy at the NTNU Trondheim and he is an advising researcher at the Jan van Eyck Academie Maastricht. At Goldsmiths College in London, he is working on a doctoral project on the subject “Imaginary Property”.
